FRANCHISE SECURED 3y Electric Road Projectors at Kokomo and Young America 'or the Construction of » Line Between These Points—Oilier Ball- road Sews. A franchise has been secured by larties living at Kokomn and Young America 1'or the construction of an lectrlc railway between these points. The scheme also contemplates connecting Burlington, Ind. This road will give an outlet to one of she rlch- st farming districts In the state, and armers there have hitherto been ompelled to haul their product welve and fourteen miles to market. Construction will begin about the first of April next. It will thus be eenthat Logansport will lose tbe rade of the people In that section of be country unless a competing elec- rlc line is built. RAILROAD NEWS. The Panhandle pay car arrived in he city ao 9:45 this morning. Patrick Mahoney had his right land badly injured yesterday at the >anhandle blacksmith shop, and will ie laid up for several weeks. It is said that the coming statement of the Panhandle for October will show a surplus above all ei- enses and fixed charges of $380,00. Panhandle passenger train from ioiumbus, due here at 3 p. m . was clayed five hours this morning at Dunkirk, caused by two freight cars umping the track at that place. All raffice was delayed. The Brotherhood of Trainmen just t present seem to be Increasing in membership faster than any other of he rail way brotherhoods. In Osto- er five new lodges with large mem- erships were instituted. A number of railway companies .111, the coming year, Introduce the ractice of paying prizes to the foremen of section gangs which have the est track. This method has done much to bring the lines which pay rizes up to their present excellent tand'ard. Most roads pay as first rize $100, second 875, third 150 and or the best yard 150. Road Foreman of Engines Prescott f the Panhandle, stated to a repre- entative of the Pharos today that ine firemen had been promoted to ngineers and four more are under nstructlons. Twenty-seven new remen were employed last month. Official facsimile of Medal Awarded DR. PRICE'S CREAM BAKiNG POWDER WORLD'S FAiiR, CHICAGO, 189 tfore engineers and firemen would be mployed if the company had the ad- itional engines needed to handle the ncreased freight business. Following is the report of Receiver Malott of the Vandalia showing the arnings and expenses of the Terre Iaute& Logansport division for Sepember: Expenses, 142,708.70; earn- ngs, $59,839 01. Earnings for the period for Nov. 14, 1896, to Sept. 30, 897, 1541,602; expenses for the same >erlod, $405,785.24. These figure re proof conclusive that tbe T. H. <fc L. can be operated at a handsome jrofit. It is stated that the new mogul •eight engines on the Panhandle are developing remarkable speed. It is not unusual for these engines on evel, straight track, or when running down grade, to make a speed of fifty miles an hour, and one of them lauled a Panhandle express train, actual timing, with nine cars, sixty miles an hour, which is remarkable speed for locomotives built for Telght service. It has been given out by Panhandle railroad people that their tracks will be lowered eighteen feet through Upland' Upland is the highest point between Logansport and Bradford junction, and this cut will put the road-bed in shape so that one engine can haul 100 empties or fifty loads from Bradford to Logansport or vice versa. The work will be commenced in the spring. The Upland depot will be lowered to the tracks and an overhead bridge will be used at the Main street crossing. A recent order Issued by Superintendent Gould, of the Wabash railway will cause much 111 feeling among property owners at Andrews by this order: All the stock of bridge timber for the Wabash main line between Toledo and Danville will be removed to Peru this week, and the headquarters of Bridge Superintendent Danes and force will be transferred from Andrews to Peru, The Wabash has extensive yards and when the steam locomotive now In use is far more economical and satisfactory than the electric motor so far introduced is difficult to explain. The composite car in use on some Eastern roads for suburban service is mure economical and practical than any electric motor, and is a far better mode of conveyance than the expensive and unreliable trolley arrangement." THE CORNER S10SE LAYI>6. Governor Monnt Was There Surround' ed by His Staff in Gaudy Uniforms. A dispatch from Fort Wayne to tbe Pharos states that the corner stone for the new Allen county court house was laid with appropriate ceremonies this afternoon in the presence of a tremendous crowd of people. Governor Mount was there surrounded by his stafl in bedazzling uniforms. Many state, county and city officials were present as invited guests. Sheriff Homburg of this county was tbe heaviest county official present and he was asked to lift the corner stone into position but refused. Mayor McKee was asked to make a speech but could not concentrate. A temperance address Is out of order in Fort Wayne. The Cass county crowd was chaperoned by Harry Coleman, but they soon lost him on account of his lameness. The gait was too rapid for a lame guide. There were not carriages enough for all the visiting officials, but Col. Charles Woll and Auditor Powell tipped a driver and were provided lor long before the procession started, Treasurer Cash and Clerk Flynn were provided with horses and were taken tor members of the governor's stafl. The Changes of Twenty Years. Twenty years ago this fall a party of old settlers happened to meet In front of the old court house and soon became engaged in talking over old times and relating hunting stories. The party was composed of Dr. G. N. Fitch, G. W Blakemore, Horace M. Bliss, John Davis, W. P. LouDh- ain, A. F. Smith, David Parks, S. L. McFadin, Joseph Gray, and Charles B. Lassalle. Dr. Fitch had just returned from a hunting trip up north, and bad been very successful in killing game and his hunting stories brought to mind the early days of this county when game of all kinds was abundant.

HG.RX, Tailor, 409 Market Street. 500 hundred pairs of Men's, Women's, Boy's, Misses' and Children's buildings, especially adapted to bridge work at Andrews, which are now abandoned. This, coupled with the fact that on the new time card, al Wabash passenger trains will change locomotives at Peru, makes a future look exceeding blank for Andrews. Because last week a large party of Pennsylvania officials looked ever the New York, New Haven & Hartford and other lines a rumor was set afloat that the Pennsylvania is considering the advisability of adopting electric power for it suburban service at several points. An official of the road In speaking of tbe matter, said: "Why they should adopt electricity are now living— Major McFadin, Jo seph Gray and C. B. Lassalle. "Madame Sans Gene."
